Transcript of Single Sex vs. Coed Schools

Coed and Single-Sex schools battling it out Coed Schools are the clear choice in this argument. Amazing Social Skills Aggression Chart Segragation People's Opinions Stereotypes in classes Aggressive Girls There are studies that have shown that girls in Single-Sex schools are more physically aggressive. “The specific findings from the analysis in this study are as follows: Between-group comparisons confirmed previous findings that boys use more direct/physical forms of aggression than girls do.” The studies have shown that girls tend to use more indirect aggression than direct. The peer victimization rate is also much higher than mixed-sex schools. Many of the social skills we use in our lives we learn in our schools. We learn to interact with the opposite gender. Boys learn to respect girls and girls learn how they should be treated. How are girls suppose to go to a job interview where the boss is a male, If she has never interacted with one? How are boys expected to know how to treat their wives? We need to be exposed to this at a young age. Coed Schools Single-Sex Schools "We think segregation has historically
always resulted in second-class citizens,"
said Terry O'Neill of the National
Organization for Women. Segregation is defined
as, to separate or isolate something from
another and place in a group apart from the others. So are we going back to our old ways? Separating, not by race this time, but by
gender? Where is the justification in that? Work Cited William M. Bukowski, et al. "Differences Between All-Girl And Mixed-Sex Schools." Merrill-Palmer Quarterly 56.3 (2010): 283-302. Academic Search Premier. Web. 25 Oct. 2012.

--Naima, 19, University of Pennsylvania.

"My friends and I never thought of boys as real people in high school--they were like pets! So one of the best parts of going coed is getting to know and understand guys as individuals."
--Tara Anne, 19, George.

Washington University.

"The social aspects at a coed school are what you're going to encounter in the real world when you start working. It's good practice."
--Kate, 24, North Carolina State University There could be many different
Stereotypes in the single-sex schools.
Are they going offer wood shop, or
even different maths and sciences in
an all girls school? Are they going to
offer dramas, arts, or musics at an
all boys school? What if people are
interested in those things but they
are not offered.
